Can't really beat the jet black look of this beer - it looks like a stout, and definitely lives up to its name. Head is think and tan with nice lacing that lingers. Nose doesn't have the roast that it looks like it would have - it smells like your average IPA with floral hoppiness.
Taste has an interesting mix of earthy hops and smoky malts - a good balance, but lacking in anything that really stands out. Medium body is ideal for this beer, nice and smooth without too much lingering aftertaste. Overall a good beer for the style, but maybe lacks something that stands out.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass
A- Pours a mostly opaque dark brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before diminishing to a...whoops.
S- Semi-pungent piney hops break out of the glass against a mildly roasty backdrop.
T- Quite bitter with the dark roast accentuating the bitterness and leaving a chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol is certainly present but works well within the construct of the overall flavor profile. Bitterness lingers after a few sips.
M- Oily, thick and somewhat sharp. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- This is probably one of my favorite 21st Amendment beers. A no-nonsense black IPA that brings the hops and roast right into the forefront but, even on a hot day, it goes down nicely.
